Here is a talk I gave recently at Mars Hill
The Church Without God

This was posted to my Facebook page, very probably because of my work within a post-theistic congregation, http://www.westhill.net. Funny, engaging, moving – it speaks to the interests of many who “seek God in church”. The work we do @ west hill is also for those who seek life in the midst of chaos, truth in the midst of corporate, religious, and political propaganda, one another in the face of isolation and a culture of competition, and themselves in mirrors that are too often distorted. But many of them are not seeking the god, God, and they neither use the word “god” nor have need of it. Often, they only experience frustration and exclusion when they hear it, especially in church. Where we are, church with/out god needs to be church without the word god, too, if it is going to be the radically inclusive, or spiritually non-exclusive, or barrier-free invitation to transformation that we believe, and you seem to agree, it needs to be.
